Muslims cautioned against road traffic indiscipline

The Adentan Municipal Chief Imam, Alhaji Mohammed Issaq, says any act of road traffic misconduct by Muslims across the nation during Eid festivities should not be condoned by the law enforcement agencies.

Therefore, the mounting of huge Public Address (PA) systems in the middle of busy streets to block the to and fro movements of vehicles in densely populated Muslim communities and the unlawful riding of motorbikes by some of the Muslim youth on such Eid days, Alhaji Issaq said should not be allowed to inconvenience the general public.

Speaking to a section of newsmen at the forecourt of the Adentan Assembly where he received some assorted food items from the former, ahead of this year’s Eid-dhul Fitr festival, for distribution to the Muslims in his community, Alhaji Issaq explained that Islam, which preaches peace and reverence to authorities and law and order, does not give room for any act of indiscipline or malfeasance.

“Islam preaches discipline and law and order. So, any act that is against the laws of the state must not be entertained. I, therefore, want to advise my Muslim youth to celebrate Eid with decorum devoid of disrespecting and disturbing public peace and order,” he advised the Muslim youth.

Alhaji Issaq reminded all Muslims that since not all Ghanaians are completely immune to Covid-19, they should continue to observe the vital Covid-19 health protocols at all public assemblies to drastically slow down the spread of the virus.

He prayed for peaceful co-existence among all the sects, tribes, and people of the country and thanked the Adentan Assembly for the gesture which was done by the Coordinating Director on behalf of the Municipal Chief Executive, Alexander Daniel Nii Noi Adumoah.
